The CIPD Festival of Work goes digital. Update: 14 April 2020

The CIPD Festival of work is a chance to immerse yourself in a world of inspiration and discovery – developing you, your people and your business. Even in light of recent events due to Coronavirus, we want to bring that directly to you, so we are now planning to run the festival as a 3-day online event on 10-12 June 2020.
